glowing plum tree / sage smudge / last perfect bag fry

If the 2022 Cuvée Alanna is bohemian in nature, the blended 2021 Riesling is its populist counterpart. Though not shallow in substance, this vintage might yet better reflect humanity's animalistic tendencies. Light in colour and body, the tropical aromatics and tangy acidity consummate on the tongue to reflect a proverbial party in one's mouth, preferably on the last day of school with pizza and cream soda. A gentle marmalade-like sweetness gives this vintage a pleasing roundness and depth, feel free to rim your stemware and fill the margarita sized void in your soul.

Few producers in the world of natural winemaking have experienced a rise as meteoric as Martin Wörner of Marto Wines. In the years leading up to taking over his family’s vineyards in Flonheim, Rheinhessen, he learned the art of viticulture at acclaimed producers Gut Oggau & Matassa, gaining invaluable firsthand knowledge on biodynamic winemaking before harvesting and releasing his first vintage from 2016. Acclaim quickly poured in from around the world, and as he slowly increased production, he met Toronto native Alanna LaGamba, becoming both life and winemaking partners, working together on Marto Wines while she also operates Vin De LaGamba, known for the magnetic Frauenpower, her take on German Lambrusco. Located in the western part of Rheinhessen, the village of Flonheim lay mostly on sandstone soil, and while warm during the summer, receives some of the lowest levels of precipitation in all of Germany. Marto’s wines contain no additives of filtration of any kind, providing a truly unique expression of one of the most renowned winemaking regions in Europe.
